11:19pm
new power outages expected. let's look at where the nor'easter is still putting down the snow. the snow bands are not as heavy and steady as earlier but several inches of accumulation on the ground. a little more of a southern turn, we would have had more snow here. it turns out nothing more than a slushy coating on the northern part of the state. right along the water line here in hartford county down toward apg and into annapolis some showers. some over the chesapeake right
11:20pm
now. in the north there could be some slick spots toward daybreak tomorrow. you can see right now most of the rain actually getting a little batch pushing south to dc, that's just temperatures too warm to support any kind of a sticking precipitation. the rain has been light. about a tenth to a quarter of an inch in a few spots. mainly rain with a little snow mixing in there. wind gusts have been around 20 today. higher at the beaches though. we're picking up 34 in aberdeen 36 in chesterten. we can see where we could easily fall below 32 degrees. those are all going to be in question for the morning commute. you're gonna be looking at the potential for some pretty ugly
11:21pm
weather. it was ugly at the beach today by the way. in fact we had basically nothing but big surf rolling in as the nor'easter passed off shore. it was all rain down this way. in as far as dover they did see some pretty decent snow this afternoon. a bit of a mix is coming down and that can make for tricky conditions. 39 at bwi. coastal flood warnings continue overnight into the day tomorrow. and wind gusts of 43 in new york, 23 in philly. so it's still gusty along the coast. slowly but steadily that's going to decrease a bit. tomorrow as this area of low pressure slides out to sea we're still going to say --
11:22pm
it's going to stay gusty. even as this system pushes out we will look for a breezy and cold day tomorrow. i know what you're thinking. the temperatures. well warmer air builds in on thursday and that will push into maryland. a better warmup on friday. watching carefully the rain and snow showers mixed, they will be widely scattered but there could be slick spots in the morning. you can see the scenario here with an improving picture into the mid 50s fridays. 60s for the weekend. a change in the weather pattern. we'll get cold air back next week, so enjoy that veterans weekend. >> more abc2news coming up next. >> here's a look at what we're looking at on nightline. >> the real story of barack obama and what it says about a
